Catfish Friday Music members that participate in the community are encouraged to challenge the CFM rating system (CSR/MSR) as explained below, as members collaborate and provide music services for each other.

The MSR (Member Scale Rating) voting/ranking system involves the community at large, other members, and their responses. Members and listeners in the community will score your performance(s) and submissions, and an average of those responses, combined with some other metrics, constitutes your MSR.  All members’ MSR begins at “1.0.” This rating, MSR, can offset your default Catfish Scale Rating (CSR) immensely and possibly set the charge for you to fast track some CSR ranking metrics.  An entry level CFM member starting out with a Catfish Scale Rating (CSR) of 1.0, might easily climb into the 2.5 or 3.5 level(s) in their MSR rank if it is shown member's votes and responses indicate a well liked track, quick study, and possibly a “shooting star” in the making.

The other CFM scale rating feature is called the "Catfish Scale Rating," (CSR). A member's "CSR" is determined by the house, managers and admins along with other's metrics CFM takes into consideration. Otherwise, all "participating" members in the site that elect to participate in the services offered within the site, start with a CSR of 1.0, MSR 1.0.

BAH Listing Costs

CFM charges a service fee of 8% for BAH terms:  Open Bids (OB), and Flat Fee (FF), and "Open Contingency.”  These fees apply only if the BAH transaction is completed and BAH producer accepts a member's submission, services.

When a posting BAH member, producer, chooses an “open contingency” BAH, all CFM community members are welcome to submit performance responses. CFM will assess the 8% service charge to the transaction, should the posting agent, member, decide to utilize performance services rendered by responding CFM member.  There are no guarantees that any member submitting performance services when an “open contingency” term has been implemented and should posting BAH member not "accept" services from any participating member, they will hold CFM harmless of any and all service exchanges that are considered and reviewed between any such CFM member parties participating in their BAH. The posting BAH member that may have submitted a deposit will be credited back their deposit amount.

All BAH posting members, producers, can access “PayPal” in order to facilitate deposit and payment(s) for services rendered by other community members. Those participating in the BAH program are expected to have their PP account credentials listed in their profile in order to facilitate transactions.

CFM requires at BAH time that posting member submit a 20% hold fee payment to their CFM PayPal account for security until submitting members performance services are completed and delivered; in the event no CFM member's fulfills posting members BAH expectations, BAH deposit will be credited back to member.  Completed and posted performance services, or record tracks, will remain on CFM servers while BAH members reviews the requested submitted tracks. Upon final approval, CFM will release such tracks (via URL/Email) to receiving designated member after, and not before, remainder and full sum of services charged has cleared PayPal account. Upon release, performance submitting member will be credited their PayPal account for remainder sum owed, less the CFM 8% service charge.
